Mike Flanagan’s latest horror miniseries, this time tackling Edgar Allan Poe tales, will launch Oct. 12.
Netflix’s Fall of the House of Usher has released the first images from the Edgar Allan Poe classic short story adapted by Mike Flanagan.
The supernatural limited series, to bow Oct. 12 on the streaming giant, sees ruthless siblings Roderick and Madeline Usher building Fortunato Pharmaceuticals into an empire of wealth, privilege and power, only to have past secrets surface when the heirs to the Usher dynasty start dying off at the hands of a mysterious woman from their youth.
In one of the first images released by Netflix, some the Usher family is assembled at a dinner table, with Sauriyan Sapkota in the role of Prospero Usher, Rahul Kohli as Napoleon Usher, Samantha Sloyan as Tamerlane Usher, while Mark Hamill mysteriously lurks in the background in the role of Arthur Pym.
Bruce Greenwood, who plays the role of Roderick Usher, patriarch of the Usher dynasty, toplines the miniseries along with Carla Gugino, Mary McDonnell and Carl Lumbly.
